Stampin' Up! Owl Builder Punch is a Hoot!

Well are we all ready for another day of Olympic excitement?  How fabulous were the Brownlee brothers yesterday?

Today's card uses a technique called embedded embossing - really effective don't you think?


Three owls were punched out from Rose Red, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink card stock using the Owl Builder punch. These were then stuck to a piece of Confetti White card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. This piece was then sandwiched in the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot to give the embedded effect - how easy is that? The embossed piece was matted onto a piece of Regal Rose card and then onto a Confetti White card base. A piece of Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon was tied round in a bow. The sentiment from Party This Way was stamped in Rose Red onto Confetti White card, punched out using the Large Oval punch and matted onto a Extra Large Oval punch in Rose Red.  The Owls were finished off by adding their eyes from the original Owl Builder punch.

I have torn myself away from the television today and am listening to the Olympic coverage on Radio 5 Live again.  Come on Team GB!
